Age of DJ Akademiks
Livingston Allen, aka DJ Akademiks, was born on May 17, 1991 in Spanish Town, Jamaica, but moved to New York City when he was 10 years old, in 2001.

The model received a lot of criticism when it was reported that she had utilised the Charlotte Hornets player to obtain substantial child support back in August 2021. Her ex-boyfriend PJ said that Renner would not allow him to see their child, which prompted the two to engage in back-and-forth arguments on social media.

Become a Star
When he was still in school, DJ Akademiks started writing blogs to rap forums as a way to deal with the cultural shock of relocating from Jamaica to the United States. He took things a step further after enrolling at Rutgers University by trying his hand at music production, but the effort was not particularly successful because of a lack of adequate networking. He started working as a DJ for his campus radio on Saturday nights around this time, which helped him gain confidence. As a result of his popularity, he started getting requests to DJ for neighbourhood BBQ parties and gatherings. He frequently posted photos and videos from these events on his social media accounts. His online presence as a result helped him receive offers from all throughout the state of New Jersey.
After two more years of DJing for radio and events, he made the decision to launch his own website, Late Night Creep, where he would post the most recent hip-hop news. He transformed the website into a fully-fledged hip-hop blog with significant readership in less than a year. As his website’s popularity increased, he expanded the range of subjects he covered, started publishing his own opinions, and even started discussing high-profile feuds. He founded the YouTube channel “LateNightCreepVids” in October 2012 with the intention of publishing satirical news videos about the entertainment industry, with a focus on hip-hop. He quickly published interviews with well-known figures in the world of entertainment news, like Ms. Drama and Charlamagne tha God. But his fame soared after he posted over 600 videos documenting an incident at the 2015 Summer Jam Fest Jersey that resulted in 61 people being detained. Fans regard his channel as one of the most trustworthy and dependable sources of hip-hop news.
Disputes and scandals
DJ Akademiks recently found himself in the centre of a heated debate after a competing hip-hop website, hiphopoverload.com, asserted in late November 2018 that he is the secret informant who is assisting federal agents in their investigation of rapper Tekashi69 for racketeering. According to a blog post by Kifano Jordan, nicknamed Shotti, the attorney for Tekashi’s previous manager, Akademiks, was the informant. It also referred to him as the “false BFF” who turned informant to avoid being charged with federal obstruction of justice, which could have resulted in a minimum five-year prison sentence.
After the accusations, Akademiks asserted his innocence in the case in an exclusive interview with TMZ, saying he had “never been questioned or much less cooperated in this” and that he thought the defendants were “decent people.” Scott Leemon, Shotti’s attorney, brazenly denied providing any interviews about the matter incriminating anyone in a statement that was also published by ‘TMZ. Despite all of this, he could not escape criticism online because people kept accusing him of publishing material on his blog and YouTube channel that might have implicated the defendant. He frequently posted odd things to Instagram and dropped names during Twitch streams, which didn’t help.
